    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Staffaroni is neuropsychologist in the UCSF Department of Neurology. He provides clinical neuropsychological assessments, and his research focuses on predicting disease progression and improving endpoints for clinical trials in neurodegenerative diseases. He completed a MS and PhD in Clinical Psychology at Palo Alto University, with an emphasizes in neuropsychology. His training included a clinical internship at the West Los Angeles VA Health Care system, where he also studied FDG-PET correlates of memory in Alzheimer’s disease. He then completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at UCSF's Memory and Aging Center (MAC).

    In his work at the UCSF MAC, his research program aims to prepare for clinical trials in neurodegenerative diseases by: 1) developing and validating trial endpoints, 2) leveraging multimodal neuroimaging and fluid biomarkers to predict patients’ clinical course and inform clinical trial stratification, and 3) developing novel approaches for selecting clinical trial endpoints that honor individual differences. He is also interested in healthy aging, and studies the aging brain through a combination of functional connectivity, structural imaging, and perfusion imaging.
